She was listed as one of three to receive an Honorary Doctor of Letters from the Cave Hill Campus in a ceremony on October 20.

In a statement the UWI disclosed that Rihanna, unfortunately, will not be able to receive the award this year because of scheduling commitments.

The UWI Cave Hill, Barbados campus has chosen to honour the charitable singer with a special dissertation.

The honorary degree should have been presented to her at a special ceremony scheduled for October 20 at the Cave Hill Campus in her homeland Barbados.

Rihanna received The Harvard Foundation award for Humanitarian of the Year in 2017.
